9780140279566: Margaret Thatcher: The Authorized Biography, Volume One: Not For Turning

Margaret Thatcher was the longest-serving Prime Minister of the twentieth century and one of the most influential figures of the postwar era. Volume One of Moore's authorized biography gives unparalleled insight into her early life, especially through her extensive correspondence with her sister, and recreates brilliantly the atmosphere of British politics as she was making her way, taking us up to the zenith of her power: victory in the Falklands.

Based on unrestricted access to all Lady Thatcher's papers, unpublished interviews with her and all her major colleagues, this is the indispensable portrait of a towering figure of our times.

Review:

Moore has produced a biography so masterly ... that it comes as close as biography can come to being a work of art (Craig Brown Mail on Sunday)

Moore's great gift is his ability to make Thatcher's story fresh again, and above all to remind us of how odd she was ... the access to her family and friends enabled Moore to produce a multifaceted picture of a compelling life ... [this] will now become the definitive account (Anne Applebaum Daily Telegraph)

Intricate, elegant and laced with dry humour (Andrew Rawnsley Observer)

Outstandingly good (A.N. Wilson Evening Standard)

About the Author:

Charles Moore was born in 1956 and educated at Eton and Trinity College, Cambridge, where he read History. He joined the staff of the Daily Telegraph in 1979, and as a political columnist in the 1980s covered several years of Mrs Thatcher's first and second governments. He was Editor of the Spectator 1984-90; Editor of the Sunday Telegraph 1992-95; and 1995-2003 Editor of the Daily Telegraph, for which he is still a regular columnist.
